What are emergency services like in Spain?
When we asked members about emergency services in Spain, they wrote...
"Emergency services in Spain are generally reliable and efficient. In the event of an emergency, you can call 112 to request an ambulance. The operator will ask for your location and the nature of the emergency, and will then dispatch an ambulance to your location. In some cases, the operator may also provide medical advice over the phone," said another expat in Spain.
"Emergency care at the private hospital is excellent. I’ve used it and was able to be seen by a doctor and out in less than two Hours. The hospital I used was Vithas and they provided translation service for patients. Most doctors at Vithas speak English, too," wrote a member who made the move to Granada, Spain.
